Title

Santa Claus with Gifts and Poem

Description

The card actually depicts two different views of Santa Claus. The main one is in the center of the card, showing Santa in a red coat and blue pants while carrying a tree, drum, and balloons. In the upper left there is a smaller circular inset also showing Santa Claus, although in a slightly different style of red suit, and carrying a tree. The bottom of the card reads "Christmas Wish / Oh, for a glimpse of the old home / And its dear ones, tried and true; / I'd be so happy if I could / Spend Christmas Day with you."
